Today we ventured out in the cold to go to Mission Santa Clara. It’s on the University of Santa Clara campus, which is a small, but very pretty little campus. This is what we saw. Brandy, I thought of you. 🙂
Two freezing little ones. Check out the red noses and Z’s two coats.
Little orphans on the steps of the Mission?
I didn’t take pictures inside the church, but it was absolutely gorgeous. They had a lovely Nativity up, and some beautiful artwork, in addition to the fully restored building. The chandeliers were insane. I wish I’d had more time to take in the stations of the cross, but the lighting was a little low for Z, and someone came in to pray, so it was about time for our largish group to leave, even though the kids did a great job of staying quiet.
Overall it was a great trip, and it’s wonderfully close to home, which makes it even better! And it netted me this picture, which is one of my favorites I’ve ever taken:
